REUSE- What is it?
Reuse extends the life of an item, which may eventually be discarded, but in the mean time, is useful and remains in circulation instead of gracing the top of a garbage pile in a landfill. Reusing uses much less labor, natural resources and pollutants that would be required to make a new item or recycle old materials. It also gives the opportunity for someone else that cannot afford a new item. We have a handy list of businesses in La Grande that will find homes for items that no longer meets your needs, but with a little TLC could be a boon for someone else in our community! more more information about Reuse go to www.deq.state.or.us/lq/sw/wasteprevention/index.htm
